Does it take miraculous healing in your life for you to believe in Jesus? Some do feel this way. They are “asking for a sign” just as those who crucified Him. He told them that “no sign will be given to you except for the sign of Jonah“. What does that mean exactly? Jesus spoke of His burial after the crucifixion where He would spend 3 days in the grave and then rise again.
But He didn’t spend three days in the grave? According to the way the Jewish calendar marks days, He did. Their calendar is based on the lunar cycle and they count days beginning and ending at sunrise and sunset. He was arrested during the night of Friday, beginning of the day, His “trial” lasted into the early morning, and then His body had to be taken down before sundown which was the beginning of their Sabbath. Then, of course, the third day began at sundown on the Sabbath and by sunrise on the first day of the week, His tomb was empty!
So, what does it take for you to believe in Him for your salvation? He came out of the tomb just as He said He would. He stayed with His disciples for 40 days and then ascended into the clouds. Even the angels who spoke to the disciples on that day said He would return in the same way when He comes back. Isn’t that enough proof?
I know, there are also people who don’t believe that the Bible is true. Well, I don’t have the patience or the knowledge to prove the Bible to you except to tell you that ALL of the prophecies contained in it’s pages have come true except for the taking up of the church (the rapture) and the prophecies contained in the book of Revelation. So, if you are stubborn enough to ignore all of the evidence then you are welcome to enjoy the wrath of God during the Tribulation. Thank you for your attention.
